* Carrots can survie many weeks in the ground, but you should never let them go so long that they start to dry. If you do, they may split.
* You can fertilize your carrots once or twice during their growing season. However, you should never add manure to your carrot beds.
* Interplanting your carrot beds with onions and garlic will help to keep the pesky rust flies that love carrots away.
I agree with the previous post but a tip to get them started is in a mixture of dark rich soil and sand. we planted carrots straight into the ground and found it hard to get them pulled up when they were ready. Adding the sand into the dirt made for easier harvesting and helps in keeping water at the plant through really dry spells
